Any body ever fitted or know someone fitted a second battery in the engine bay of a Ti patrol??

1 auto sparky said he can fit one by fitting a smaller air filter...not so sure about that idea... any info from anyone is much appreciated..

ARB's catalogue shows dual battery systems for the GU patrol complete with smart solenoid, N70EX battery, battery tray, wiring etc from about $550

Anything can be done , dont be scared to shift things around

Smaller air filter is a bad idea

thanks for the advice people.

Arb and the bigger players simply said no. Not very helpful at all. Just want to put a battery in the cargo area and call it quits. I need my cargo space.

The auto and abs position in a petrol motor is where the secondary battery would normally go. I have thought of moving stuff around. but i was sus about going to a smaller air filter.

I'll keep looking and consider my options.

thanks for the advice.

How good is a gene in a 4wd while it's been tossed around during transit?? i just picture fuel going everywhere. I have considered this as an option when i get to sites. is it safe on the roof?

The yamaha equivilent to the honda eu10i i've been told is more fuel efficient and quieter..can someone verify.

It just can't be done we looked at it with ours and if you are going to have a second battery then you are going to get a fidge and more that likley a winch so bit the bullet and go for an odyssey and sit it over the rear passager wheel arch then fit your drawers around it and have the fridge slide on that side that way you will loose no space at all and will have a great second battery, also will then leave room under the bonnet for things like air compressor and pump for shower, have been running with this set up since last years and works great, even put 2 volt metres on the cargo barrier one for the fromt and one for the rear.
All the best

thanks heaps for that. I'll look into that. I'm thinking today of a 90amp/hr agm batt in battery box strapped in cargo area.

I can then remove it when i need it.eg. jump start my batt when it dies.

You will not need to remove it just have your auto elec join it to the front battery so that you can swith from the cab then you hace got the best of both worlds, you can also join together ti winch or leave the rear one in reserve, plus if you run all your extra stuff off the rear one then that will leave the fronf to start the patrol.

I know of 4 people with Ti's , including myself , and we have all looked into Dual Batts with No success , and that includes a bloke with plenty of money.

I guess there is ALWAYS a way , none of us have found it yet.

My Dual Batt is on my Camper. A couple of guys are building , dummy dual batts (in the rear). Can be disconnected when they want.

mornin
the best and most efficient way to complete your patrol is to install a marine battery box located in the rear cargo with power outlets installed to the case.to charge this battery correctly we install a dual battery managment system running 6mm b&s cable to the battery and putting anderson plugs on the end, and another plug mounted on the case. you then a portable powerunit to take away to run lights/fridge/pump etc

from glenn the 12volt installer
